Easy Lunches For Kids

My kids eat a huge breakfast.  I usually make eggs, sausage, bacon, oatmeal, breakfast burritos, that sort of thing.   Since I make a bigger breakfast, I try to keep lunch easy and simple.  I feel like I just cleaned the kitchen and then it’s time for lunch.  We get tired of sandwiches VERY quick so I like to make other things for the main item.   I usually serve fruit and maybe another side like yogurt, a cheese stick,  peppers, carrots, etc, but here is the main part of the meal.  Scroll down to get the list of easy lunches for kids.  You’ll be glad you did!  Sometimes you just need a little reminder to get you motivated!

  1. Thanks for the great ideas! The kids and me sometimes get into a little slump as what to make for lunch. I like that some of these ideas are simple, so they could make them themselves.

    We all need some inspiration, thanks for these great ideas. I love leftovers for lunch the next day, but since I have such great eaters, I’ve found I have to take my left over portion out of the pan first, otherwise there’s none left!! 🙂
